Nagodopsis albipuncta sp. n.
The forewings are sparsely scaled with dark grey, the central zone being
somewhat transparent; scaling is also heavier on the veins, particularly over
the cross-veins of the cell. There is a darker patch subapically on the costa
with a scaleless area between it and an obscure dark fascia that runs down the
costa at three-quarters to the tornus. There is a small patch of white scales
one third from the base just posterior to the cell, resembling that of Chalcocelis
Hampson males. The hindwings have a central transparent triangle as
illustrated, surrounded by dark grey; the dorsum is pale brown. In the male
genitalia the valves are much deeper than in parvimargo and lack
triangular flaps in the saccular zone.
